It seems to me there's a lot of overlap with casinos and gaming, esp online gaming.bipartisan, one dem, one GOP
It's a valid issue, how should cryptocurrencies be regulated, if at all?
As securities?As commodiites?And, perhaps most notably, under the bill’s definition, a digital token “is not a representation of a financial interest in a company, including an ownership or debt interest or revenue share.”
So, maybe regulate the exchanges as you would online gaming. For example: Nevada online gaming regs There is the known issue of running a money transfer business, which is the current licensing model, and that brings in FinCEN, perhaps banking regulators, and anti-money-laundering rules. Well, I suppose casinos have to deal with all that too, so again the casino framework seems to apply.
Finally, the crypto coins themselves are like the casino tokens, and apparently these have to be approved: Chip and Token report. Of course, you can't stop somebody from inventing a new crypto-currency (nor would you want to), but you could force a licensed exchange to get approval to trade it.
